In this case ABM Industries's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 ABM Industries shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0178% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable ABM Industries shares, roughly 18 shares are currently held short).

Dividend payout ratio: 30.66% of net profits
Recently ABM Industries has paid out, on average, around 30.66% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.94% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), ABM Industries shareholders could enjoy a 1.94% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ABM Industries's case, that would currently equate to about $0.76 per share.
While ABM Industries's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that ABM Industries may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
ABM Industries's most recent dividend payout was on 1 February 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 January 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
ABM Industries's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 7 May 2002. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your ABM Industries shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for ABM Industries shares which in turn could have impacted ABM Industries's share price.

This would suggest that ABM Industries's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
